schema:reviewBody""In this book, Francis Cogliano looks at both the impact Thomas Jefferson had on his historical moment and the considerable lengths to which he went to secure his legacy. Beginning by locating Jefferson's ideas about history within the context of eighteenth-century historical thought, Cogliano then considers the efforts Jefferson made to shape the way the history of his life and times would be written. The second half of the book reflects on the mixed results, from his time to the present, of Jefferson's efforts to shape historical writing, through his careful preservation of most of his personal and public papers, and through the institutions he left behind: his home, Monticello, and the University of Virginia."--Jacket."
